Implementation Idiots

I am in a rather foul mood today and unfortunately, a few people moving objects got in my way today. Since I have an extremely low tolerance for stoopidity, I whacked a couple of heads today.

The first one is someone who I gave a briefing to last week. Everything seemed fine and he seemed to have a clear picture on what is happening. Then, over the weekend he must have lost his brain. This morning, he began asking me questions on how to do this and that. At first, I pointed him in the right direction but after a while, I just told him – “I am sorry but If you expect me to spoon-feed you, it is not going to happen.”

Then the next one is someone whom I have never met or even spoken to. He is probably a new guy who has been unfortunately saddled with the job of dealing with me. He presented me with a document that clearly showed that he failed to understand the whole concept. So, I suggested that he do some reading on the concept to catch up with what is happening then we can talk. He had the gall to tell me that he does not have the time to read and since I am the ‘expert’, I could walk him through it. I just told him – “If you do not know how to read, maybe you can look at the pretty pictures in the document that I included.”

In both cases – silence ensued. I can be particularly nasty when I am in a foul mood.
